No, anyone educated in perspectives and witnesses knows that what one observers sees isnt necessarily the 'truth' other observers see. What video does is provide a static record of one viewpoint from an unbiased perspective. Saying it is pure truth is wrong. Its a singular unflinching perspective. Whether it reflects the 'truth' of the situation is another argument.

"Windows is a computer operating system and offers the power user near complete control of your system"

This is no longer true. Win 10 is an appliance OS. Microsoft can install and uninstall anything they want on the PC without even asking me. There are areas of the OS im completely walled off from. (like disabling the store).

The people who make a living off of Youtube want to perpetuate the idea that Youtube is the only feasible way to disseminate video speech on the Internet. They want to keep the illusion that this is a 1st Amendment issue when really its a Free Speech issue between private entities. None of them talk about rolling their own video service. They expect everything to be provided and get upset when Google tugs on the reins the creators willingly put on.

"Software should be continuously updated, no matter what, else it doesn't deserve to live any more. This is a step in that direction, Apple is doing the right thing here."

I believe in the exact opposite. Software should be built like a hammer. If i drop a hammer on the ground, any other human can come along and use it, no matter how much time has passed. A thousand year old hammer is still useful today. Sure a drop-forged, mass produced tool MIGHT be better, but not necessarily so.
